Let The Sunshine In

Let the Sunshine In is a 1969 album by Diana Ross & the Supremes recorded and released by Motown.

It contains the hit single "I'm Livin' in Shame" (the sequel to 1968's number-one hit "Love Child"), "The Composer," a Smokey Robinson composition that peaked at #27 and "No Matter What Sign You Are," a single produced by Motown chief Berry Gordy that failed to crack to Top 30 (peaking at #31).

One track from this album, "Let The Music Play" was an outtake from the "I Hear A Symphony" album recording sessions and therefore features backing from one of the founding members Florence Ballard who was fired two years prior to the release of this album in 1967.
